What I think is that he underestimated what that feat would take out of him in terms of fatigue. It reminds me of what Milos is going through playing members of the Big Four on a more regular basis. It's an adjustment, another step up -- and they have to be ready for it.
I don't think he was ready today.
I think the Czechs were probably a little more fatigued, having both played singles the day before. I will say one thing, he was better than Verdasco was in that DC match in Austin last year.
